The chapel is spectacular and well worth the price of admission. If you visit Cambridge you should make it your first stop as it is an attraction that is without rival in England. The grounds of King’s College are also worth exploring and include some great views of the chapel.

Truly one of the wonders of Britain. Takes your breath away. An interesting and informative though slightly academic exhibition about the history of the chapel - the academic nature to be expected in one of the world,s leading university cities.

Stunning chapel in centre of Cambridge. Cannot miss King's Chapel when walking along Kings Parade. It is worth paying to go inside the chapel as there are lots of little exhibitions and lots to see, as well as helpful guides.

Most week days, the choir - one of the best in the world - performs during the 5:30 Choral Evensong. A not-to-be-missed event for visitors to Cambridge. The architecture of the "chapel" is spectacular and worth the visit in itself.

No visit to Cambridge is complete without a visit to Kings College Chapel. When visiting it is best tof view from both the Backs and Kings Parade. Once inside you are bowled over by the ambience of the interior.

Feeling of grandeur and being overwhelmed by the place and the experience. As a staff of Cambridge overseas unit, KCC staff was helpful and friendly to me and family.

This was something we'd only seen on the telly but to see it was beautiful. The sun shone through the stained glass which lit up the whole area. Would certainly recommend if you are visiting Cambridge

We paid the £9 each to visit this world famous location. The chapel is marvellous with the most wonderful stain glass windows in every window. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were lucky that an organist was rehearsing for a concert that evening and we were able to sit and take in the marvellous sound of the organ... More
